A Penny Saved

This probably wasn't the hard-hitting economic issue Obama was looking for to talk about, but it provided a funny exchange.


"A voter at Sen. Barack Obama's town hall meeting in Greensburg, Pa., yesterday asked whether he would consider eliminating the penny.

'We have been trying to eliminate the penny for quite some time -- it always comes back,' Obama said. 'I need to find out who is lobbying to keep the penny.'

Somebody in the crowd pointed the finger at Illinois, the home of Abraham Lincoln.

'Oh, you think it’s Illinois? You’re blaming us?' he asked before turning serious. 'I will seriously consider eliminating the penny as long as we find another place for Lincoln to land.'"
